DePauw junior Gabby Smart was recently named the North Coast Athletic Conference Softball Player of the Week.
Over the past week, Smart hit safely in four of the five games she played in to open the 2016 season. She posted two multi-hit games with a .353 batting average (6-of-17) with one home run, five RBI, two runs scored, 11 total bases and a .647 slugging percentage.
Her best game came in the team's 3-1 win over Birmingham Southern on Feb. 18 where she went 2-for-3 at the plate with 1 HR and 2 RBI.
The infielder from Chicago, Ill. also helped turn three double plays and recorded 13 putouts in the five-game span.
